Mecademic goes small with MCS500

Large robots can create a challenge in certain industrial environments, so several start-ups and established vendors have invested in minimizing the size of SCARA systems.

One such company, Mecademic, has launched MCS500, which it claimed is the world’s most compact SCARA robot. The robot is a highly precise, easy-to-integrate automation component and is faster than previous models, said the company.

The MCS500 offers a high throughput and is suitable for high-precision applications, said Mecademic. The company added that the robot operates with fast cycle times at large payloads, making it ideal for pick-and-place and assembly operations along with lab automation and in the semiconductor industry.
